More lake-effect snow, frigid air for upstate NY areas

December 26, 2017

WATERTOWN, N.Y. (AP) — Forecasters are calling for up to 2 feet of additional snow for areas east of Lake Ontario that have already received as much as 32 inches from lake-effect storms over the long Christmas weekend.

The National Weather Service says parts of the Tug Hill Plateau north of Syracuse have received 22 to 32 inches of snow from persistent storms blowing off the lake’s eastern end.

In parts of western New York south of Buffalo, storms off of Lake Erie have dumped 10 to 26 inches of snow, with up to another foot expected by Wednesday. Wind gusts in some areas will top 30 mph.

Temperatures will continue to dip across New York this week, with forecasts calling for overnight lows to dip below zero in the northeastern section of the state.
